Why does he …? Why does she…? Why don’t they… why, why, why?
The short answer is, God made them that way. The long answer, well, is a lot more complicated. We have all, at some time, had to deal with a boss or co-worker that got on our nerves. It’s okay you can admit it! Office peeps can be annoying at times.
Since it’s the LOVE month of February, we hear A LOT of sermons and otherwise about how to make your marriage better, the best it’s ever been, etc., but what about the other relationships in your life? We spend a good portion of a week with co-workers, probably even more than at home for some people if you add it up. So, HOW do we best deal with THEM?
Knowing what makes them tick will help. Finding out the WHY will lead to the HOW.
A quick and fun way that I have discovered is through The Flag Page. Mark Gungor is a pastor, and a funny, insightful one at that. He has come up with this survey that tells you what “country” you reside in and how that “country” best gets along with other “countries”. For example, my dominant country is “Perfect”. Now, that is no surprise to me! LOL…. I like to be organized, have order in my life and very detailed. How does Perfect country get along with someone from Control country? Fun Country? Peace Country? This survey will break it down for you.
Getting your whole staff to take the survey would be fun and make for a very insightful staff meeting! It only takes 5 minutes to fill out the survey and will cost a little bit ($15) but really worth it to get insight. It will help you with co-workers, bosses, children, AND your marriage! Trust me on that one! Take a look at it HERE. I happened to know someone that would LOVE to help your church staff analyze the results. Let me know if I can help!
